Hello friends! Today I wanted to share a little Christmas in July with a couple of my favorite past Small Die of the Month Club Kit die collections: The Snowman Builder and Gilded Tags & Frames. The Snowman Builder is the first month I signed up for the Small Die of the Month with Spellbinders. I can't believe this awesome limited edition set is still available! It's one of my all-time favorites. Today I'm sharing a couple of quick and easy snowman scene cards with this set and even throwing in the a Gilded Tags & Frame die on one of the cards to show how awesome these mix and match. Let's get started:
I'm a big fan of scene cards so I started out both cards by using a MFT Drifts and Hills Stencil to mask off the bottom of each Bristol Smooth Cardstock panel and inked above the stencil with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink. Over the blue sky background I used the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil and Lawn Fawn Yeti Pigment Ink to create the illusion of falling snow in the background.
I let the backgrounds air dry completely. You can also speed up the process by hitting them with a heat tool to help the ink dry faster.
Sentiments from the Mama Elephant Season's Greetings and Peaceful Wishes stamp sets were stamped directly on the background for the card on the left with clear embossing ink and heat setting with white embossing powder.
The snowmen for each card were die cut from a combination of cardstock or glitter cardstock using the The Snowman Builder dies and assembled to each background as shown. Detail was added to the scarves with a little white pigment ink and an opaque white pen. Glossy Accents was added to the carrot noses on both and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White were added to the eyes.
Aa Gilded Tags & Frame die was used to die cut Black Velvet cardstock and a Mama Elephant Retro Holiday Labels sentiment was stamped and embossed on the frame and the snowmen arms were positioned to look like the they're holding up the signage!
